WordPress Security

Every day, some scary article or Facebook post about a major site being hacked or a sensitive database being compromised hits the web and everyone is code red. Did you know that Google blacklists over 6,000 malware-infected websites a day? Consider the ramifications of your website being blacklisted tomorrow. Might hinder your traffic a bit, no? Securing your WordPress site is one of the most critical aspects of starting your online presence and growing it to the next level. As your site becomes more popular and garners the attention of new consumers, it also becomes a more attractive target for hackers and people who are up to no good. While there is no silver bullet when it comes to securing a site, there are several things that can be done to make it less likely that your site will be compromised. When I first launched Keekee360design.com some 6 years ago, I couldn’t have told you the difference between DDOS and Mike Doss. I was among the ranks of those who used the same password for all my accounts … and my bank account … and, you get the idea. Over time, I have learned the importance of taking security seriously.… Read More»

Designing a logo for your business can often be a challenging task – involving time, resources and internal debate. A good logo sets the stage for your company’s visual brand for years to come. Your logo is the foundation of your brand. Your logo’s design not only influences how your customers (and the rest of the world) perceive your brand—it also dictates the colors, fonts, and graphics that will be used in your marketing materials. From email signatures all the way up to your website, your logo design holds power. So what is a Logo? Your logo is a symbol, sign, wordmark or emblem. Logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization across different mediums. What is Brand? A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with, by identifying the name, logo, slogan, or design of the company. Branding is when that idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people, and identified with a certain service or product when there are many other companies offering the same service or product. Simply, your brand is the emotional and psychological relationship… Read More»

How to get away with Branding

logo design, web design , website deisgn, social media management, website maintence, website hack repair, SEO, grapgic design , huntsville, al , ga, tn. miss, huntsville

Branding is the process of aligning the opinions people hold about your brand with the set of thoughts you want them to believe and trust. Apple has done an excellent job of branding its’ company and changing the rules along the way. Apple blew up the rules of branding because Steve Jobs simply didn’t follow the traditional rules, and he never did what he was supposed to do. He knew that someone else’s success wouldn’t be his own, because it’s a fact that imitating others has never resulted in great successes. It’s just great flattery. The rules that criminal-law professor Annalise Keating tells her students to follow if they want to win a case on the hit TV show, How to get away with murder is: Discredit the witness. Find a new suspect. Bury the evidence. Through the television series there are several lessons learned by the student. In this article, we will take the same approach; so pay attention. At the end of the quarter, a grade will be given and it will be measured by the implementation of these rules and the success of your brand. Trust the witness Good branding starts with people aka your witness. People… Read More»

Breathtaking Game Design: Abzû

Breathtaking Game Design: Abzû PauloGabriel May 05, 2017 Many people are not into gaming and that’s a shame. It might happen due the lack of knowledge of beautifully done game design. Some of them bring us truly breathtaking experiences, independent of its genre. Recently I’ve played a quite simple game, but it was a fantastic experience: Abzû. It is a fantasy game, set in an underwater world, and it’s beautiful. Not only it has the looks, but it also has got the music. Abzû’s soundtrack is soothing, and adds so much to this amazing gaming experience. But be aware: if you suffer of bathophobia, you might want to take it slow, because your phobia will probably get triggered. Anyways, this has definitely made my list of beautiful games. I hope you get the chance of playing it. Game design and art of Abzû Check out the trailer: game design

Incredible Graphic Design Process for a Poster by Partee Design

Incredible Graphic Design Process for a Poster by Partee Design abduzeedo May 30, 2017 The best way to learn is by seeing how people do the work that inspires us. Nowadays there are many ways to learn about design, there are sites with tutorials like this one, videos on Youtube and many other venues. Most of the time though, it’s about tools like Photoshop, Illustrator. When I see a graphic design process that is done in the analog way, I feel the need to feature it here on ABDZ. That’s the case for the poster design for la Local de Joventut 2017/2020. by Partee Design. The poster itself is gorgeous, but the way they did it makes it even more awesome. It was created literally by throwing stuff at hand make letters. When I saw I suspected it was too real to be 3D. As advanced CGI is, it’s still cannot beat the real deal. Check out below. The image was made through throwing pink pigment on handmade letters. We looked for a good visual impact and the party sensation. Graphic design process graphic design poster

Framer Design: The UI/UX Design Ultimate Tool

Framer Design: The UI/UX Design Ultimate Tool abduzeedo Jun 01, 2017 It’s a great time to be a designer especially in terms of access to information, resources and tools to get our job done effectively. Today, to make things even more exciting, the lovely people from Framer launched Framer Design. In my opinion, this is the new standard for UI/UX design tools. The reason I am so adamant about my statement is because it brings design and code closer together than ever before. It’s not a coding tool that does design so so, it can be used as a design tool solely and beautifully, but it magically allows you to create prototypes right there as you would expect if you used Framer before. Details on this awesome UI/UX Design tool The new graphics mode offers a way to draw your designs directly in Framer, with a full-featured toolkit and device-specific artboards. But where Framer Design really excels is in its auto-layout functions, built specifically for responsive interface design. Once artboards are complete, a designer can then simply switch over to Code mode and insert pre-made interaction patterns or create multi-screen app flows. Programming logic still powers much of how the Code… Read More»
